This is a southern gospel song. All I can remember of the lyrics is:

Thank you for the valley I walk through today.

I found a slightly longer quote in a novel called Daniel by Mary Christner Borntrager. (Thorndike Press, 2000), page 139:

Thank you for the valley I walk through today.
The darker the valley, the more I learned to pray.
I found you where the lilies were blooming by the way.
And I thank you for the valley I walk through today.

The theme of the novel seems to suggest the song might be Amish. But do the Amish sing songs in English?

There are several videos at YouTube of this song, all done by amateurs, as far as I can tell.
